We can accommodate any style of event from Rustic to Casual to an Elegant Event. Our Main Hall can seat over 300 guests and our full-service bar will seat 50. With a magnificent stone fireplace, wood cathedral-style ceilings, this is the perfect place for you and your guest to relax and let us do the work. Our facility has a refined lodge and rustic ambiance with the wood pitched ceilings along with pine log walls in our bar which is adjacent to the main hall. We are nestled among a wooden area in Waterworks Park with an outdoor patio and large parking area. There is 3 acres for your use and can be used for outside ceremonies, yard games or lawn games. These are just a couple of unique settings for any company event or wedding.
